The following comes from a November 15 USCCB press release:
BALTIMORE—Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, was elected president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) during today’s annual fall General Assembly in Baltimore.
Cardinal DiNardo has served as vice president of the USCCB since 2013. Archbishop Jose Gomez was elected as USCCB vice president.
Cardinal DiNardo and Archbishop Gomez are elected to three-year terms and succeed Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, and Cardinal DiNardo, respectively. The new president and vice president terms begin at the conclusion of the General Assembly on November 15.
Cardinal DiNardo was elected president on the first ballot with 113 votes. Archbishop Gomez was elected vice president on the third ballot by 131-84 in a runoff vote against Archbishop Gregory Aymond of New Orleans.
Bishop Robert E. Barron, auxiliary bishop of Los Angeles, chairman-elect of the Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis in a 122-90 vote over Bishop Frank J. Caggiano of Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio of the U.S. Archdiocese for Military Services, chairman-elect of the Committee on International Justice and Peace in a 127-88 vote over Bishop Robert W. McElroy of San Diego.
The election of Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio over Bishop Robert W. McElroy is a victory of the Catholic Church over the church of Pope Francis.
Very thankful to our Lord that Bishop McElroy was not elected.
Do not be deceived by Now-Card. Daniel Dinardo. He is a pro-Francis-man, favoring indifferentist ecumenism and subtly in favor of women’s ordinations.
May 28,2013, he personally approved a female Methodist bishop (Janice R. Huie, of the United Methodist Church of America, cf. umc.org) at the Houston Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, to conduct an ordination ceremony for her Methodist clergy.
DiNardo personally approved the ceremony in a Catholic cathedral, a matter directly confirmed by his Chancellor of the Diocese, Bp. George Sheltz. Besides the confusion of using a consecrated Catholic cathedral for a Protestant ceremony, the UMC accepts gay marriage and abortion. One wonders why the UMC didn’t have a church of…
….of their own available, but had to use, not just a Catholic house of worship, but the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. Imagine Dinardo’s opposition if the SSPX or the CMRI congregations were to ask to use the Cathedral for their ordinations.
It is also a prime example of why you cant trust many Catholic hierarchs today:
cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church:
2285. Scandal takes on a particular gravity by reason of the authority of those who cause it or the weakness of those who are scandalized…Scandal is grave when given by those who by nature or office are obliged to teach and educate others.
So, look who’s running the USCCB show now.
Pray the Rosary! If our nation humbles itself and repents for its wickedness, God will allow His Church Militant to drain the swamp of filth and corruption dwelling within his Church.
Lifesite News – Liberal Oregon official who fined Christian bakers loses election
November 16, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Brad Avakian, the Oregon labor commissioner who investigated and then fined Christian bakers Aaron and Melissa Klein for refusing to bake a “gay wedding” cake for two lesbians, lost his race for Secretary of State last week in a historic election that broke the Democrats’ 14-year hold on statewide offices.
Great news! Praise be to God who is righteous and holy.
